Talent is like a shell with no core if not provided with the essential tools. Landscaping is an art form that requires not only the talent and know
how but sufficient tools as well in order to make it a reality. Landscaping tools come in various forms depending on the purpose and intensity of the job at hand. With the right equipment and know how, creating your very own landscaping masterpiece can be an inexpensive hobby that will stimulate your senses and work your muscles at the same.

Any landscaper will require a set of spades. Spades provide different purposes depending on the genus of the job at hand. The most preferred spade is the small narrow bladed shovel. These are ideal for digging holes to plant trees and weed out unnecessary shrubbery. There are other types of blades that are made for shoveling soft dirt such as manure and loose soil. But a good quality shovel that won�t crack due to a bit of use is ideal for the job.

A set of shears is a must for maintaining a landscaped garden. Shears will be required to cut branches and spruce up bushes depending on what sort of foliage you have in your garden. A trusted brand that your local supplier suggest would be ideal as some shears stop working due to rust etc after use. A good fitting set of shears with grips and a guaranteed blade would be a great choice. Consulting your local hardware store will be the best move you can make on this one.

A rake is essential. Don�t be disheartened by its look. It can be a supreme facilitation when it comes to cleaning and tidying up your garden. A well balanced rake can in fact be more useful than electric leaf blowers as you can get a perfect finish done with a rake. They also assist planting seed as they make great leveled holes for potting. Getting a steel rake is therefore an investment for any landscaping enthusiast.

A wheel barrow should be the vehicle of your landscape. It will carry everything you need and help you move plants, rubbish and any other item with ease. It will be very useful if you cannot lift heavy objects as minimum strain in required in using a wheel barrow. A reliable branded wheel barrow will be a sound investment in your landscaping tool shed.

These are just the basic tools you will require in landscaping. There are many more tools that will help you reap the best from your garden. A good pair of garden gloves and boots will be your armor in the landscape. A mattock is great for breaking up hard ground. A saw will be very useful if you have a lot of trees; as shears will be inadequate. A ladder will be useful for trimming and pruning bushes or trees. A �mulcher� will be useful if you have a lot of debris that collects up in the vicinity. Although it will be a bit expensive than the rest of your tools it will be helpful to you in the long run as you can use the mulch for tossing compost and layering plant beds. If you have a bit of lawn in your garden a handheld electric trimmer will be useful but if you have a somewhat larger lawn a lawn mower will be essential in maintaining it. With these tools, a well maintained landscape will be a given.
